[b]Description:[/b] [i]Balloon sculpture is a fun, easy and fascinating pastime. And best of all, it's easier than you ever could imagine. Balloon sculptures are wonderful adjuncts to the performances of magicians and clowns. Souvenirs made of bright, colorful balloons are popular with children of all ages, and adults, too. This broadcast quality DVD teaches you how to make incredible creations like a professional balloon artist in just minutes.
With DVD technology, learning how to make balloon animals is simple. By freezing frames and jumping to specific explanations, mastering the fundamentals of these works of balloon art is easier than ever before[/i].
-------------------------------------------

I don't do balloons, never have. Seriously, not even the now [i]classic[/i] [b]Needle thru Balloon[/b]. I'm not sure exactly why, perhaps it has something to do with my own [i]bizzare[/i] childhood. I have a younger brother who's idea of fun included sneaking up on me (on a regular basis) and popping a balloon to scare me. Nerve racking indeed, probably one of the reasons I never became a clown. :lol:

However, those of you who may be thinking of adding balloon animals to your act for the little ones to enjoy are in for a real treat, because [b]Fun, Inc.[/b] has produced a very good dvd which will have you making balloon animals in no time at all. :nod:

Hosted by [i]TRICKY THE CLOWN[/i], we are taken thru the process of making balloons into cute little animals one step at a time. Types of balloons are discussed (some I didn't even know existed) as well as a slew of little [i]trade secrets[/i] that make the journey ever so much easier.

Well over thirty (30) different sculptures are taught, including various [i]Flowers, Hats,[/i] a [i]Butterfly, Rocking Horse, Clown, Parrot on a swing[/i] and of course several adorable dogs. This is done so well, I'm almost tempted to try a few myself!

The package is put together very well, a nice menu, good sound and excellent picture quality. With so many poorly shot videos out there, it's always a treat when someone makes an effort to do it the right way.

If you are a beginner, I can think of no better way to learn and the price is certainly right! Recommended. :)
